For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. Rom 4:13
Many children of God are going through difficulties in life trying to make ends meet. In trying to achieve their desires, some conform to the carnal world. If only they would know what God has granted them, they would not subject themselves to the standards of the carnal world.
If you are a child of God, it is imperative that you grasp the understanding of what God has granted you. There are things you must know that God has fulfilled for you in Christ that you may not suffer in trying to achieve them. When you get to know these things and believe them, you shall understand that the world is at your disposal.
When God promised to make Abraham the heir of the world, it did not require Abraham to work for what was promised or do something for the promise to be granted. For God to make him the heir of the world, it only required Abraham to believe those things that God had promised him. Abraham did not need to see or prove how God will work it out. He only believed, and God accounted it on him for righteousness. By imputing this righteousness on him, God gave Abraham access to the entire world. It is this belief that drove him to do what was humanly impossible, for an old couple to conceive a child at 90 years of age. This belief in what God says we are in Christ, is the righteousness of Faith.
Today, by this same righteousness of faith, you and I have the access to the entire world. Nothing will be too far to reach or too hard to do when you have this righteousness imputed to you. All we must do is believe what God says about us in His Word and live out what we believed. This is the righteousness of faith. You do not work to earn it, nor do you prove it, to have it. You just believe it to become it. Abraham believed and became; you too can believe you are presently what God says you are, and you will live to see it fulfilled. This righteousness says you are rich, not because of material wealth to prove it, but because Jesus was made poor, for you to be rich. You are healed, not because you have no sickness but because by the stripes of Christ you were healed. It is when we believe, then are we established, as scripture says, in righteousness shalt thou be established.... Isa 54:14.
It is in this righteousness of faith that God has granted all who have it the blessings to reign in life, (Rom 5:17). Anyone outside this righteousness cannot see nor understand how the people in it prosper and prevail in life, (Ps 1:1-3). Only when you get this righteousness of faith can you understand and enjoy life in different dimensions. So, go ahead and be what God says you are in Christ Jesus. Soon you will see your life becoming what you believed. (Further Reading: Rom 4:1-25; Rom 10:6-11; 2Cor 5:17)
Dear Father, I thank You for Your Word. I accept and believe what Your Word says I am. I pray I consistently live my life in the faith of Your dear Son Jesus Christ and that my life aligns to the revealed Word of God. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
